Cast copper alloy mount or possibly lock pin dating from the Roman period, that is c. AD43-410. Only half of the object remains and the edges are worn smooth suggesting that the original break is ancient. The complete head was circular in shape with crescentric moulded grooves and a large lip around the central projection on the obverse. There is another projection on the reverse, but that is far more worn and could have been an attachment loop/shaft or similar.
